Aglag Buteel Temple with Nomadic Family Homestay

The views were still spectacular, so you can only imagine how the whole park looks like on a sunny day.  The monastery itself isn't that unique or special. What is special about this site is the Buddhist statues and arts carved into the mountain and the trails that loop around the mountain. You go from awesome views of the valley to meeting a female Buddha carved into a stone, through the trees past animal statues. Its peaceful, pleasant and a chance for everyone to get in touch with nature.

The monastery located in 16 km west from Bornuur soum of Tuv province, at the front of Dalyn Khavtsal Mountain. Created by Buddhist artist and lama G.Purevbat to practice meditation, to educate and create books. The monastery gate protected by Garuda griffin, which is laying its 8 eggs and a beaver with fish head to guarding. The paradise monastery and Buddha portrait exalted in the position on honor, Yanjinlkhama goddess on the right wall, and the paradise and the hell paintings on the left wall.

  • Day 1: Aglag Buteel Monastery

    Stop At: Aglag Buteel Monastery, Ulaanbaatar Mongolia
    Aglag Buteeliin Khiid is located approximately 100 km from Ulaanbaatar. These carved rocks are the work of the students and teachers from the Buddhist college.

    “Monastery of Tranquil Felicity”, is one of the three largest Buddhist monastic centers in Mongolia. The monastery complex is located in the Iven Valley near the Selenge River, at the foot of Mount Büren-Khaan in Baruunbüren sum (district) of Selenge Province in northern Mongolia. The nearest town is Erdenet which is about 60 km to the southwest.

    The monastery was established and funded by order of Manchu emperor Kang Xi or Enkh-Amgalan Khan to serve as a final resting place for Zanabazar (1635–1723), the first Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, or spiritual head of Tibetan Buddhism for the Khalkha in Outer Mongolia. According to tradition, while searching for an appropriate site to build the monastery, the exploratory group came across two young boys, Amur and Bayasqulangtu, playing in a field on the steppe. They were inspired to build the monastery on that very spot and to name it after the two children, Amur-Bayasqulangtu. Construction took place between 1727 and 1736 and Zanabazar’s remains were transferred to a newly created temple in 1788.
